The site of Tell Tayinat was excavated in the 1930s by the Oriental Institute, who found there a wide array of monumental statues in this Iron Age city. Some of these were found perfectly intact, while others were found smashed to pieces. Join James Osborne, PhD (assistant professor of Near Eastern archaeology, Oriental Institute), as we explore the stories behind these monuments’ creation, use, destruction, and preservation.
